The Winston Box


The Winston Box is a self-funded small-startup on a mission to deliver affordable clothing and consistent sizes at an affordable price. A big & tall men’s clothing company, made by big men for big men, forged with over 42 years of frustration with what the fashion industry has to offer Big and Tall guys.

The Winston Box takes both its name and its inspiration from Sir Winston Churchill, former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom and one of the most stylish men to ever grace the planet. The Winston Box goal is to dispel the myth that style and size are mutually exclusive by being purveyors of fashionable clothing designed to fit and flatter the Big & Tall man.

As a responsible corporate player, empowering our customers through body positivity and self-confidence while empowering our team members in Peru through training, mentorship, and opportunities. Having complete control of the design, manufacturing, and distribution of our signature label, we can deliver high-quality garments and consistent sizing at a reasonable flat rate. This isn’t business. It’s personal.

We were founded April 2016 and continue to create unique designs that mix the best of African and American culture. All of our clothes are proudly manufactured in Nigeria and shipped worldwide from America.

The Meaning Behind the Name:
The term Obioma was coined after the Biafran War, also commonly known as the Nigerian Civil War. After the Igbo people’s community was destroyed, the men and women of the Igbo community made a living by mending clothes. They carried their sewing machines on their heads, as seen in our logo. From their humble beginnings they were able to rebuild their lives and regenerate their wealth and community. We take pride in our ancestry and commemorate their perseverance. This is why we are proudly named Obioma.

Robert E. Knight


I was born and raised in Brownsville (Brooklyn, NY). I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology, with a degree in Menswear. I started concentrating on creating Womenswear in 1995. In 1998 I elevated to creating full figure Womenswear. I have always been a fan of asymmetry, color and prints, and I enjoy injecting all three into that special one-of-a-kind something.

I have assisted at numerous high end companies, including Dolce and Gabanna, Zac Posen, Peter Som, Calvin Klein, just to name a few. My looks have been worn by “Dreamgirls” actress/singer Moya Angela, Cynthia Bailey from Altanta Housewives, Wendy Williams, R&B singer Monica, legendary singer Martha Wash, violinist/vocalist Tona Brown, supermodel Tyson Beckford, the late Issac Hayes, actress/comedian Kim Coles, actress/comedian Mugga Phoenix and choreographer Laurie Ann Gibson.

The Dorcas Collection


Dorcas Moore, known as Dee Moore. Native of New Orleans, Louisiana, mother of three and proud advocate in the plus size community. Member Of Alpha Pi Zeta Sorority Inc, the second plus size sorority in the United States. Dee Moore started her entrance in to the world of fashion due to an emotional abusive relationship. In that relationship, she was called names such as “Fat”, “slouchy” and “unattractive”. These are just to name a few. One too many days of being called “FAT” she had enough and decided to take such a negative and hurtful word and turn it into something positive. From this her first creation was born called “Fashionable And Thick”. A body positive movement in which she designed a t-shirt line with powerful messages to aide in the ceasing of fat shaming.

She always had an outside of the norm way of dressing, never wanted to have the same attire as others. In 2015 she started to take sewing lessons, then created a line using the ankra fabrics she learned to use in class and affectionately named it after herself “The Dorcas Collection”, in which she debuted in her very own production “Glamour Glitz and Curves” 2016.

In 2017, she decided to bring out the elegant sexy side by curating exclusive pieces to add to the collection to give consumers the choice of having something designed or handpicked. Not knowing the true purpose and blessing in the name that her mother gave her until the day the “Dorcas Collection” was created, Acts 9:36. www.thedorcascollectionbydeemoore.com

LiviRae Lingerie


LiviRae Lingerie, is a brand that has become well known and respected among women around the world. Although the boutique opened its doors in 2006; the owners, Cynthia Decker and Molly Hopkins collectively boast over 20 years of knowledge and experience. The knowledge and experience that these ladies have, provided the fuel needed to transform their dreams for the boutique into reality. While LiviRae Lingerie specializes in custom bra fittings, mastectomy bras and prosthetic accessories; the boutique is home to many products that service and support both men and women.

Cynthia and Molly gained popularity on a national level in 2013 as the stars of Lifetime’s reality series Double Divas. This allowed the southern belles to share their voice with women around the world, but it didn’t stop there. Cynthia and Molly continue to use their voices and be catalyst for change by promoting body positivity.

In a world in which women are discriminated against because of size, disabilities, race and age; there is LiviRae Lingerie. A brand that believes in the inclusion of all women and who understands the importance of diverse representation. Nothing exhibited their beliefs more than the ambassadors they selected to represent the brand; black, white, plus size, standard size and wheelchair bound women were all selected. These women were placed in the windows of LiviRae Lingerie with pride and when body shamers and negative people came for them, they started the #NOSHAMELIVIRAE campaign.

The #NOSHAMELIVIRAE campaign provided another moment for these fearless women to speak up and out. With national media outlets such as Allure, The Curvy Fashionista, The Today Show and CNN supporting the Double Divas; this incident presented them with an opportunity to show the world just how ignorant discrimination is and how they refuse to take it sitting down.

House of DiGGnity by Crystal Diggs


The House of DIGGnity was birthed in May 2015. I remember seeing this skirt that I had to have; I also remember seeing the price point too! “I can make that I told myself”…I had a hand sewing machine; just knowing that would do everything I needed. Although I couldn’t find the fabric I found some fabric, set up shop to sew and absolutely nothing was accomplished…two sewing machines and a crash course later I begin the sewing journey. Coincidentally I was going thru a very emotionally abusive relationship, sewing begin to be the only way to process my sadness. I laughed when I sewed, I cried when I sewed, sang while I sewed and talk to God when I sewed. I looked up 27 skirts; sewing was helping me to heal, helping to understand. When it was all said and done I gave 26 skirts away…I still have the very first one.

Between YouTube and more YouTube I begin to master the art of sewing, combining that with my custom graphic tees; that are designed and printed by me. I share myself with the world. Every shirt and skirt has a story, a reason for its creation.

I am glad that I no longer sew because I’m sad, I sew because I have a story to tell…it’s like Water for Chocolate.

So I welcome you to the House of DIGGnity…

2bContinued Jeans (Conchita E. Jamison)


I began my journey in November of 2010 at the International Academy of Design Technology in Chicago, IL. Frustrated from searching for flattering jeans for my (7year old at the time) daughter and I, I set out on a quest to design the perfect pair of jeans. I’ve always been a person that never fit into a box so with Gods help and guidance I created a Custom Plus Size Jean line called 2B…(Continued) Custom Denim Jeans Inc., which reflects just that. Our brand accentuates the waistline uniqueness of the curvy woman. Our motto is “You’re not just a body type, you’re a proportion!” I believe that when you look good you feel good.

Christian Omeshun


Christian Omeshun was founded by Atlanta based designer A’Shontay Hubbard. She attended Bauder College and received degrees in both Fashion Design and Business Product Development. While in school, A’Shontay was a stand out amongst her peers, staying true to her artistic vision. A’Shontay chose to pursue fashion design when she noticed a lack of modern, sophisticated options for plus sized women – particularly if they were tall. The options found in stores were often cookie cutter, generic, and had an unflattering fit and length. As a plus size woman with a flare for fashion, A’Shontay found this simply unacceptable and set out to create a custom clothing line for the woman who wanted more.
